This woodland in Coffee County is one of the best hiking destinations in Middle Tennessee. A well-developed trail system passes by clear streams that form waterfalls as they drop off of the Eastern Highland Rim into the Nashville Basin. Dry, oak-cloaked ridges stand tall between these deep valleys where the water flows.

Fantastic little park! Trails were very well maintained. Machine Falls is stunning. The hike gets a little steep, but is well worth the effort.
